5 Days of Pumpkins: Checkered Gold Painted Pumpkin

Yesterday I showed you a really easy way to get a gold “dipped” pumpkin, and today I am taking it up a notch with a checkered diamond pattern!

I just used the same spray paint and some white address labels to get this look. I think it complements the other gold pumpkin perfectly.

To start I just grabbed a sheet of blank white sticky address labels and cut them into squares. Then I started laying them out on my white pumpkin like this…

It took a bit of trimming on the stickers near the top to get them to match up properly since they are being applied to a round surface, but I managed to get the corners all lined up nicely and ready for painting!

Once the stickers were in place, I taped up the stem because I wanted it “au natural” and free from gold. Then I just got busy with the spray paint and sprayed the whole thing. When dry, all you need to do is remove the stickers!

I hope you liked this pumpkin makeover! Stay tuned for more freshly designed pumpkins and if you missed yesterday’s, check it out here.

Remember, tag your pumpkin photos with #5daysofpumpkins on Instagram so I can have a look! I love seeing what you do with your pumpkins too!
